Unlike previous weeks, it was A&E’s “Live PD” that took the top spot in the Friday cable ratings this time around, after scoring a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 with 2.078 million viewers. Meanwhile, the Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” followed closely behind with a 0.7 as well, which was two-tenths higher than the 0.5 that the series had scored the week before. On Lifetime, both “Rap Game” and”Bring It!” managed to maintain their previous 0.3s for the second week in a row.

In addition, ESPN’s NBA basketball regular season coverage continued to carve out some high places for itself in the cable ratings once again this week. The network’s broadcast of the Minnesota Timberwolves vs Boston Celtics game scored highest with a 0.6 rating and 1.595 million viewers, while the broadcast of the later game between Washington and Memphis landed just below it with a 0.5.
